Ruth is here!

I just wanted to write a quick update. Around 11 pm last night my water broke, sending me into full labor. The fetal treatment team decided that the risk of waiting any longer was too great, and Ruth wasn't handling the contractions as well without fluid. So, at 1:50 am pst, our sweet Ruth was born. Her stats: 3 lb 15 oz, 16 inches. She is doing great today, has needed no assistance with breathing. Her scar looks great, we have been able to hold her and try to breastfeed. I will update the full story with photos once I get my laptop up (posting this from my phone), hopefully later tonight if I can manage to stay awake. Please continue to pray for Ruth, they are working!
